Website too slow?
Little known fact: when Google lands on your website it's spider robot gives you 3 seconds for your site to respond.
Assuming your hosting provider can deliver a signal to the robot the Google bot allocates only a few seconds to scrape each page in order for it to be indexed in its search engine.
If your site isn't loaded in time it will only scrape a little bit of the page and could miss out on much needed content.
The problem with slow websites is a common one as more development companies opt to create sites from off-the-shelf web site creators such as Wordpress etc. The one size fits all means that the site on loading must load a huge amount of code before it can display the page. Add to this the range of plug ins and you have a speed issue.
